Hospital Security Tight Where Escaped N.Y. Convict Held

Published: July 1, 2015

The hospital holding the convict that escaped from a maximum security prison in New York isn’t taking any chances.

The Malone Medical Centre has upped security since David Sweat, one of two felons who escaped from a prison on June 6, was taken there after his capture on June 28. People entering the building must go through a police checkpoint and show their ID badges or explain their reason for coming to the hospital, according to standard-freeholder.com.

Sweat, whose condition was initially labeled critical after being shot twice, will be transferred to the Albany Medical Centre. Officials have begun questioning Sweat as his health has improved.
